Lewis and Clark College, in Portland Oregon, is situated on exquisite grounds and property dating back to the late 1800’s. Could there be a more serene and inspiring learning environment? Thank you for such a warm embrace to your community, and for having me as your keynote speaker and presenter to work on Expansive Education. It was a true honor. At the end of the amazing day, one faculty member asked me what I had learned that day. As a lifelong learner I was reminded of the sometimes overlooked, but hugely impactful effect of environment on learning. By utilizing the grounds of Lewis and Clark, a heightened level of conversation was born. To see this dynamic interaction happening was truely invigorating and inspiring!
